The main hotel is full, and has been for ages. There should be space in one of the overflows, but the downside of the Bradford location is that those hotels are not exactly close.

Sian Martin is the SQ8 hotel liason, on accommodation@eightsquaredcon.org

Depending on where and when you fly in and out, we may well be able to come pick you up. We'll be up in Bradford from Thursday through to Tuesday, and we can come get you and Ted. (I'm assuming young Indy is staying home, not having seen his membership badge going past.)

We're flying into Leeds Bradford and arrive at 9:10am on the Friday. Would you be able to collect us and deliver us unto the Jurys Inn? :)

Eek, that's an early flight. What time do you have to be up to catch that one?

(Just as well you've got buses to the airport from the end of your road.)

But yes, I see no reason not to be able to meet that.

I suspect that'll be somewhat too early to be able to check in (British hotels being like that), but if you want to dump your luggage there and carry on up to the Cedar Court, I should be able to do that too.

And you have my mobile number? I assume you still have the number that ends in 6633?
kitmizkit on March 22nd, 2013 01:24 pm (UTC)
I, er, must have your mobile, though I'd have to check to see if it's actually associated with your name... :) yes, I do have that same number, and oi, we're up at like 5am for the flight, but the only reasonably-timed flight also cost 3x as much, so... meh.

On the other hand, yeah, I'd go for a flight that early if it was that much cheaper too. Unless it was only from €15 down to €5, which this close to the time I strongly doubt.

And eep! Holy crap, I hope next week isn't like today. Looking at http://www.leedsbradfordairport.co.uk/arrivals-and-departures a whole bunch of flights are arriving hours late.

(I note last text message exchange between us was only a couple of months ago.)

Wish I were joining you - I'm pretty sure I had originally planned to try to attend eastercon at least once but finances are just not up to it and haven't been for some time.

Hope everything works out and that you have a marvelous time - please give vast write ups of what happens and who you see and all for those of us not in attendance.
